Test Drive: 1963 Volvo 122S Estate!

Hey, this is my friend Agent 0311's Volvo station wagon. Restored from a derelict field car over the last three years, off and on. A really fun car to drive, and should last a lifetime, unlike today's shit cars. These are rugged, honest cars with lots of charm and a great roar from the un-silenced twin SU carbs. High quality Bosch electrics and ZF steering box components are part of the reason these cars were so tough; most of the front end parts were still in perfect condition and were not replaced. This early Amazon still runs drum brakes all around, and charging is handled by generator. No upgrades were done to the car. The tires were sourced to match the original spare, still in the back. Hope you enjoyed looking at and listening to this great old car! See the story at volvo122s.blogspot.com, or check out coldwarmotors.blogspot.com if you really have to kill some time at work.

1967 Volvo 122S for Sale (Drive By and Test Drive)
Visit http://www.sunsetclassics.com/1967-volvo-122/ to see this fun sporty 1967 Volvo 122S for sale from Sunset Classics in Minneapolis Minnesota. The previous owner was a real racing fanatic. He learned to build engines and adjust a cars suspension and engine for maximum handling. This car spent 18 years in Oregon with the previous owner, and although it was never raced on a track, it was built for speed and handling. The current owner is also a loving car enthusiast. The engine, suspension and paint were all nice when the current owner bought the car in 2011, but even so he continued to make improvements on the car. The stainless steel Exhaust is one of the more notable additions the car received since it found a new home here in Minnesota. This '67 Volvo is the sixth car I've listed for the current seller. So don't let the short ownership make you think this car is not loved and appreciated like crazy. The seller is aiming toward owning 100 cars during his lifetime, and since he doesn't own more than one or two at a time it's time this Volvo moved on to a new, lucky owner. Even though the car must move on, the seller mentioned this Volvo is tied for first in the "fun-to-drive" category! For the past two decades, this car has been blessed with very caring owners. As a result this car runs, handles and responds as if it is giving thanks for all the love and attention it has received. The front and rear weight distribution is nearly even, the car is light relative to horsepower, and the suspension has been lowered by about two inches and fitted with new tires and shocks. So this 1967 Volvo 122S is about as fun to drive as any sports car out there for sale today. Take a look at the full specs at the link above as well as two detailed photo galleries and more video. Give me a call to get your hands on this fun sports car! John Snell 612-805-2428 Thanks for watching - enjoy the drive by and test drive video and leave a nice big thumbs up and a Like on this Volvo 122S. http://youtu.be/DH_z2qKUlBk





Cold Start the 1972 Chrysler Newport: What's Your Carbon Footprint?
Hi! Time to put the 1972 Chrysler Newport Royal 4 door hardtop into storage before it gets completely buried. First we gotta get it started. These babies will leave a big black soot mark wherever you start them, until the choke heats up and pulls off. I love this car, it drives really well, and it has been very reliable on long highway trips. I bought this car 10 years ago to save it from the derby and replaced the front subframe due to rust. A well maintained car, only two previous owners, mostly original in & out. Thanks for checking it out.





Will it Run? Episode 11: 1950 Chevrolet Fleetline (Part1 of 2)
Hi! This is the latest installation in our series on salvaging junk cars and trying to get them to run, for no really good reason. This time our subject is a 1950 Chevrolet Fleetline Deluxe, parked since 1966! Parts of the engine are missing, and so are the seats. The budget for repairs is about $20, as usual. We'll trade our junker pickup for the missing parts. I traded a couple of dead Mercs for this Chev because I thought it should be saved, and not parted out. Join us for a tour of Coyote Auto Salvage as we find the missing parts and take our new treasure home. In part 2, see if we can get it to go, and look a little better, too. Re-uploaded due to steady-cam feature malfunction. Thanks for checking it out!





Amazon 2012?





By Request: Cold Start the 1972 Chrysler!
Hi! Time to put the '72 'Port away for winter. It's been sitting outside for months; will it start? It's snowed in pretty good... This old Chrysler has been a pretty good car for the last 10+ years. It's a low-end 4 door hardtop with very few options. Never gives any trouble and holds lots of friends! A 400 c.i. 2 barrel with a 727 Torqueflite auto. Nothing special, but a fun car from the age of dinosaurs... Thanks everyone for watching this stuff, and for subscribing! Cheers from Canada.

Real Drivers: Volvo 122 Amazon
See more at http://hittingredline.com/ . This was an film that I had meant to do in the fall of 2011, but ran out of time for and pushed back to spring. Jonathan Bigelow's 1966 Volvo Amazon has an interesting story that is even more fascinating to hear in full; between its construction and now, it has crossed a number of borders, first from Sweden to Norway, and then from Norway to the United States - and all in one family. For those of you who are particular, the irritating leaf blower cuts out at around 1:17.

Cold Start the 1971 Citroen DS 21 Safari!
Hi! Cold War Motors just bought this great old Citroen DS. It's a bit tatty and will need a restoration (as soon as I'm finished my other one!), but still runs and drives nicely. These old Cits are a bit grumpy in the cold, and this one hasn't been on the road for a while now, so the battery was pretty tired. I hooked up some cables to a better battery to see if we could get her running for a last little drive before it gets put into storage. I just love these cars, and I wanted a break (wagon) to go with my sedan. This one is a standard shift with power steering and brakes. Looks like Stella wants to go for a ride, too!
